"Very strange list": The Kremlin and experts — about the rating of the most influential Russians according to Forbes


Dmitry Peskov.
The magazine has for the first time performed with such rating. Who has entered him and why the final list raises questions? Business FM Vladimira Solovya, Dmitry Peskov and also Ilya Shumanov Dmitry Peskov has asked to comment on a situation. Photo: Alexander Shcherbak / TASS the Forbes Magazine has published the first rating of 100 most influential Russians. Originators have estimated officials, security officers, politicians and businessmen in several parameters, including on proximity to Putin and an opportunity to influence life of people. On the first place — the President of Russia, and here on the second that is interesting — German Gref. How it is possible to comment on it? Professor of MGIMO Valery Solovey admitted that he doesn't understand the principles of drawing up rating. Valery Solovey professor of MGIMO, the doctor of historical sciences "In principle, the logic has to consist in that the list had included people who as much as possible influence ordinary life of Russians. In this sense, say, emergence in Gref's list in the first five, we see him even on the second place, logically. Sberbank — he all. He really influences ordinary life of Russians. Miller — I isn't sure. He, by the way, isn't so known as we will tell, Medvedev. Gazprom is known, but not everyone knows that Miller is a head of Gazprom. It isn't really clear to me.

"It isn't necessary to be the seer to put Putin on the first place" — the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov has told. Here what he has told, answering the question Business FM: — Forbes has published the rating of the most influential Russians. Whether you saw him whether he reflects, in your opinion, situation in the country? — We saw him, read in media. Frankly speaking, nothing can be told. Not it is clear what criteria, on what were based and so on. That is such very unclear list. Naturally, it isn't necessary to be the seer to put Putin on the first place. This business simple. And for the rest — very strange list. The deputy director "Transparency International Russia" Ilya Shumanov:ilya Shumanov the deputy director "Transparency International Russia" "Is very surprised to such positioning in rating I think that he doesn't reflect reality because in him there are no such influential actors of the Russian policy and business as, for example, family Kovalchukov or Rotenbergov who upon define policy at least in several branches of the national economy of Russia. For me extremely strange the fact that top managers and owners of businesses are united in one rating as one are just persons who operate the companies, by the organizations seems, even public financing, and others are owners and
